    Merseyrail has released its timetable for the upcoming strike action by guard members of the RMT union
    on Saturday 24 August.
    A limited service will call at selected stations across the network between approximately 7am and 7pm,
    with a short break in service in the middle of the day. All trains will run with 6 carriages.
    There will be no services on Merseyrail’s Kirkby and Hunts Cross lines and services will start and
    terminate at Hooton station on the Chester and Ellesmere Port lines.
    Passengers with a valid season ticket will be able to use selected bus routes in the City Region, details of
    which can be found at merseyrail.org/strike or by speaking to a member of staff at Merseyrail ticket
    offices. Passengers travelling between Chester and Liverpool with a valid ticket can use the Transport for
    Wales service.
    Managing Director of Merseyrail, Andy Heath, said: “It’s extremely disappointing that our customers have
    to suffer further strike action on the Merseyrail network.
    “We have met the demands of the RMT twice and on both occasions they have moved the goalposts. We
    have met the aspirations of the RMT and our customers, who were clear that they wanted a second
    person on all trains and we had two jointly established deals to guarantee that.
    “We are running the best possible service that we can on the upcoming strike day and I would like to
    apologise to all of our customers who will be affected.
    “Our monthly and annual season ticket holders will be compensated for a day of travel for each strike day
    given the effect that the disruption may have on their journeys. We will be writing to them in due
    course.”
    Customers will find information online at merseyrail.org/strike from today and can pick up a leaflet from
    stations on the Merseyrail network from Monday 19 August.
